Overcoming Negativity – Just get a boat :)

By August 14, 2015 No Comments

I have had such a busy Summer…bet you all have too. In this time, I have been grasping to maintain my sense of peace and balance.

How do I keep meaning and purpose in my life, when it can feel like I am trying to run through water? I can only imagine that this is my next big “opportunity” to become more. If I can find my peace with this┬ámuch going on, I am going to become like some kind of an awesome Jedi Ninja Master of sorts! (Is that an actual title?)

So what’s working for me right now, is to stop taking everything so seriously. I have been really stressing and feeling so sorry for myself about all that I am managing. I have been telling this story about how impossible it is to get even the most basic of things done. Finally, I have come to realize that the only “bad” thing about any of this, was that I was turning my life into my very own drama-based reality-show. Woe was me! Each day for a few weeks, I was starting and ending my day by affirming how impossible it was to achieve my goals. It is so crazy when we do that to ourselves…

Now that I have taken a step back, I have realized that the only real problem here, was me making it all a problem. Life is a crazy, beautiful mess and the only thing to do is ride the wave…or better yet, to “Row, Row, Row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily…Life is but a dream.”

Hope everyone enjoys a lovely weekend!
